Lucy Allison, the new community safety officer for East Cornwall, will provide an overview of her role and consult the panel on local community safety issues and how partnership solutions could be developed.  She will also be asking the panel for views on a proposed new multi-agency initiative for Saltash.                                                    

Dawn Bebe, Crowdfunder co-founder and director, will give a presentation about the scheme which helps people fund the change they want to see by backing business ideas, charities, community groups, sports clubs and more.

There will also be updates from parish, town and Cornwall councillors on local matters and an update on local policing from Devon and Cornwall Police. 

Derek Holley, Chair of Cornwall Gateway Community Network Panel said: “The Cornwall Gateway Community Network Panel is a great way to find out about what’s happening in the area.  Everyone is welcome to join us and learn how local groups could use Crowdfunder to help get their ideas off the ground.  It’s also a good opportunity to hear the latest on community safety and to meet up with your local parish, town and Cornwall councillors.”

Cornwall Gateway Network Panel meets quarterly.  Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues. 

Cornwall Gateway Community Network Panel includes all eight Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the 11 parishes in the community network: Antony, Botus Fleming, Landrake with St Erney, Landulph, Maker-with-Rame, Millbrook, Saltash, Sheviock, St Germans, St John and Torpoint.

The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Cornwall Gateway Community Network page. The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome to come along.
